It's another typical conspiracy video, heavily edited to the tune of gloomy music. Taking everything out of context and extrapolating it to one overall theme with no evidence to support it .

I don't understand how people continue to fall for such obvious tricks.

I didn't know there was. I'm not even aware of this stuff, it doesn't even cross my mind.

I don't think he's real, but I've noticed this crap time and time again in music videos where artists cover their right eye and/or hold their hand in a "6" shape over their left eye. And so many artists saying how they "sell their soul to the devil"...Seems more than a coincidence to me but to each his own

Seriously, I just watched this and I don't get it, wtf are these people trying to accomplish?

It gets people's attention, and thus, publicity. It also has no substantial consenquences.

'The devil' is ancient symbolism for a lot of bad things in general, like alcohol abuse, drug abuse. I watched part of the documentary just now, and all those fragments they pasted together all use the term ' the devil' in a different context but the documentary makers just take it all literally. I lol' d and then closed the tab, what a waste of time. I can' t believe 450k people watched that sh*t.

I.e. Melyssa Ford (yummy lol) had to sign her name in blood in a contract w/ the devil?! ?????

-RocBoys9489-

Yep she literary did that. Wasn't making a well know metaphor at all.

That's a metaphor?! Can't say I've ever heard it lol :P

Deal with the devil is well known cultural motif.

The entire mythology surrounding the devil was constructed christian cultural art and folklore. You see a lot of devil symbolism because the devil IS symbolic. It represents the most basic of conflicts: Good vs Evil. You're basically accusing the entertainment industry of using the most basic of artistic symbolism.

So music artists are saying that they sell their souls to the devil to illustrate that they've become bad people for fame and glory?! i.e. Katy Perry, Kanye West, Bob Dylan, Eminem all say it here lol

The last thing I listened to of his was during the elections, and I felt compelled to play the track where he describes the Republican Lemon Party, with Newt Gingrich pissing on George Bush in a bathtub.

Hah. He would've been great during this election. "I'll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. 'I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.' 'I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.' 'Hey, wait a minute, there's one guy holding out both puppets!' - Bill Hicks

Are you serious? Hell and Satan are one of the most widely used metaphors EVER bar none. How often do you hear someone shout "Go to Hell!", it's more symbolic than literal. Conversely you could scour pop-culture for a couple hours and make a video about how many Jesus and holy figures there are in pop-culture. Signing a deal with the devil is saying you sold your self out, your morals, or your physical being for something that may or may not have been worth it but was a bit shady or one sided.

That image of "Satan" shown in that video is actually a pagan god; the Eye of Providence (Eye in a pyramid) represents God, not the devil. The pentagram was originally a greek symbol, but is also used by Christians to represent the five senses (It actually has nothing to do with the devil). The circle made from one's fingers around an eye apparently represents the illuminati, which is a fictional organization from the novel "Illuminatus!" The number 666 represents the Emperor Nero. "selling one's soul" or "making a deal with the devil" simply means going against one's own moral code to attain fortune.

Small correction: the organisation Shea and Wilson used in Illuminatus was based on the Bavarian Illuminati, founded by Adam Weishaupt in 1776.

As far as I know, Bavarian Illuminati is much different than the present Illuminati/has no affiliation. I believe in secret societies, but think that Illuminati is way too general and its not one group, its many. JFK warned us of secret societies and power through wealth.

Yeah agreed, as I said in another thread (can't remember the name), today Illuminati is mostly used as a sort of umbrella term for "the elite" and "men behind the curtain", so to speak. I don't think the 1700s Illuminati is still alive.

Pretty sure they're all dead, and think they were behind the french,spanish, and american revolutions, they were bad asses!
